Artists' Statement:
Process, process, process, I am enamored with the process. The making pottery provides a challenge within which we begin with an amorphous, incoherent pile of mud and hopefully transform it into a coherent structure of beauty, form, and function.

I particularly enjoy making objects of simple forms, with little decoration, which are pleasant to look at, satisfying to hold, and have positive utilitarian value, but still maintain a quality of clay.
